Hey friends?!? SeanPierceJohnson here and welcome to another episode of "Stompbox Saturday"! Today, I am once again joine dby my vintage pedal obsessed friend Dakota Raysik of Dakota's Cool Guitars for another look at a whacky and stellar piece of effects pedal history.
On the stompin' block today is a 1970s Electro Harmonix Memory Man Solid State Echo/Analog Delay Line...essentially a FIRST GENERATION MEMORY MAN DELAY!!!
It's gray, looks kinda drab, has only three knobs, a built in preamp, comes with the original box and paperwork and sounds like NO OTHER DELAY PEDAL I'VE EVER PLAYED!
This one MUST be heard to be believed!
